There was facination for divinity of India. A hot destination for people searching for peace.But now the image is totally different.India means lot of fun,home for a deep rooted culture,art,craft and lot of talent.Not to mention the technological advances and indigenously manufactured weapons.With our fast breeder reactors and nuclear power generation capabilities India is also a Nuclear Power.
